- Unlike the rest of her siblings, Tsukiko is actually above average height, and is taller than her older brother Sasaki. He's only a year older than her, but she's oftentimes considered the older of the two, simply because she stands above him in height. Her hair is black and straight, and Kiko likes to wear it either without anything done it at all, or in a ponytail pretty much to the side of her head. She's got very dark brown eyes that appear black most of the times, and she definitely hasn't reached the point of wanting to highlight anything in her face (or on any other part of her body), yet. Question is, however, if she will reach that point at all, as she always was far less girly than her older sister. This also shows in the clothes she wears, which admittedly are mostly boys' clothes (except when her father is home, then she will wear the cute little dresses that he expects her to wear, what with being a girl and so young, simply because she's not become a rebel yet, and doesn't want to argue over this with her father).
- Tsukiko can definitely be described with the term 'tomboy', and she'd be proud to hear that. The girl isn't one to hate on others just because they are girly, care about their clothes, put make-up on or anything the like - she just doesn't like such a 'lifestyle' for herself. She does, however, put those girls in a group, and mostly doesn't even attempt to befriend one of them. She does have a set look on the world, and she is somewhat quick to judge what people might be like, and then she sticks with that image of them. It's not easy to convince her otherwise.
The girl is very creative. This mostly shows through her drawing skills. She draws pretty much all the time, taking sketches of places, animals, objects and specifically people. If you go look for it within her room, you might be lucky enough to find a box (which is charmed so it holds an undefined number of objects - one of the few things the girl has left of her mother), full of sketches of all the people she met, and little mangas playing out important scenes of her life. Be they dramatic, funny, lovely, or anything else, they're probably there. It's her best way to deal with her emotions, especially bad ones. She draws.
She's not the most lively, bubbly girl of her age, but she can have her little innocent moments, mostly around her siblings. Then again, she can also have an extremely dark, thoughtful air about her, which sometimes confuses even herself, admittedly.
STRENGTHS: Drawing skills, good memory, tolerant
WEAKNESSES: Indecisive, cunning, prejudiced
- Tsukiko was only three years old when her mother left, and admittedly she can't say she remembers anything about her. Maybe her smell, or the sound of her hair gently swishing when she danced around the room with the baby girl in her arms, but she wouldn't be able to describe either. If it weren't for the photos she's seen, the girl also wouldn't recognize her mother. Sometimes she blames herself for this, when she's having a dark moment, but most of the times Tsukiko is aware that it's not her fault she doesn't remember anything. After all, she was so young, she never really got to know her mother. And the girl doesn't really miss her mother, either. Which probably is mostly because she never got used to a mother in the house altogether, but well, as she grew up, it was always her older siblings around her, and sometimes their father. On rare occassions.
She grew up with her older brother Keisuke pretty much taking up the role of both her parents, and when he left for Mahoutokoro, like their oldest sister, their father hired a nanny so there would be someone to look after her and Sasaki. They didn't get along too well, she and her brother, because, well, Sasaki didn't really get along with anyone. He was a brat, but Tsukiko tried her best to stay on friendly terms with him nonetheless. The year when she was alone at home was terrible. The nanny wasn't nice, and the little girl was glad when she finally followed all her siblings to Mahoutokoro.
Once there, Tsukiko did put effort into her school work, and spent time with her friends. Both things went rather well, and sometimes she even ran after her siblings to get them to spend some time with her.
